What do our Band 5 nurses say?

Rhoda Oduro-Fordjour   

Band 5 staff nurse Rhoda Oduro-Fordjour is delighted she chose St George’s when she returned to south London after completing her nursing degree.

Rhoda, who studied at the University of Nottingham, is enjoying the challenges, learning and support of the Renal nursing team on Champneys Ward.

She attended our January 2018 Open Day with offers already secured from elsewhere. However Rhoda wanted to take her time deciding which large south London Acute Trust was right for her. Meeting the ward matron and sister rapidly convinced her St George’s was the perfect place to start her nursing career.

“I was excited straight about what they had to say about the teamwork, patient focus and support and training student nurses receive,” said Rhoda.

“The culture shone through and I was convinced it was right for me. Since joining, everything they said has come true and more – it’s been fantastic

“My preceptor was so supportive and always advised me when I’ve needed guidance on what to do on the ward. It’s a very good environment to learn a lot – I’ve already been on training days and been able to put my extra knowledge into practice. And we really do work together as a team. I was made so welcome from the start and am enjoying it every day.”
